Manzoni Bianco Fontanasanta, Elisabetta Foradori, Trento, Italy 2020

£26.00
Tax included.

The hill overlooking Trento, with its clayey-limestone soils, welcomes the Manzoni Bianco and matures the grapes in late September. The character of the Fontanasanta vineyards is expressed through this hybrid, born of a mix of Riesling with Pinot Bianco. Its ability to evolve overtime requires patience; Fontanasanta Manzoni Bianco is a wine that really comes into its own at least three years after harvest.

"Maybe the greatest natural white wine I have ever tasted. Complex and strikingly original lemon-zest, smoke and dried-chamomile aromas pour from the glass. Then comes the concentrated but very refined palate,followed by a super-long finish that's a cascading waterfall of wet-stone minerality. Just don't want to stop! From biodynamically grown grapes with Demeter certification. Drink or hold."
